…my SO working nights.
Do any of you lovely bees have any advice on how to not feel so lost and how to stop comfort eating and not reaching for the chocolate?
He is working crazy hours to afford a good life for us so I’m not complaining, I just miss him terribly.

@Soon2BD-CBee: Get the chocolate out of the house. Out of sight, out of mind. Seriously!
Find a hobby… or something that passes the time that makes you feel productive. Instead of sitting by the TV, go to the gym. Go for a walk. Volunteer.

@canarydiamond: +1! Get out of the house and busy so when it’s time for bed you’re exhausted and don’t think about your loneliness.

@Soon2BD-CBee: I don’t keep any junk food around. Find a good book series and your favorite wine. Run a bath for yourself, watch a chick flick. Focus on you 🙂

@HisAngel: I have got the Hunger Games series I have been wanting to read.
Off to run a bath.

@Soon2BD-CBee: Such a good series 🙂
When SO worked nights I always unwinded with a bath and some reading. Did wonders! You will get used to it 🙂

@Soon2BD-CBee: I know the feeling well. I am the one who works nights though. It’s only 3 nights a week, but Darling Husband is working 6 days a week during the day. We’re on completely opposite schedules. It’s one of the toughest things I’m going through and we used to be in a LDR! So for an example, I am off tonight, but I am sitting around waiting for him. By the time he comes home – we’re eating dinner and then he’s almost ready for bed. It really sucks.
You two need to set a time together where it’s a no distraction day. I usually call mine a No Technology Day. It really does help bring you closer together and help ease what you’re going through.
As for the nights he’s not home – you need to keep your mind occupied. Enjoy your life! I know that it’s easier said than done, but it does help rid of the boredom. I usually sit on Weddingbee. Haha. Sad, I know, but if I don’t have any errands to do or nothing is really going on, I fill my time chatting with the community. =) I’m more of a homebody too so that’s probably why. Get out of the house if you can so you don’t go stir crazy listening to the constant quiet!
Please feel free to PM me any time you’d like – if you’re upset, bored, or just need a chatty patty. =) Hang in there! It’s going to be a roller coaster full of emotions.

Oh girl, i’m right there with you. I eat like crazy when he’s on nights. Last night I sat on the couch watching some stupid show and eating nutella. Nights suck.
I do my best to keep my hands busy and find things to do. My project tonight will be to address our christmas cards so they can be mailed tomorrow. Or I pinterest, that always keeps me busy.
Also, get a dog! I have three and they are great company.

I would just say, find a way to occupy your mind while he’s gone. I’m a housewife right now, and miss Darling Husband while he’s gone during the day, because he works long hours most of the time. Find a hobby, pick back up with an old hobby, spend time with friends, volunteer, read, anything! Just something that will occupy your mind and help you not feel so lonely. 🙂
